Individuals who followed at least four of the below five healthy behaviors “were found to have a 60% lower risk of Alzheimer’s”, a National Institute on Aging study found.

The behaviors included “physical activity, not smoking, light-to-moderate alcohol consumption, a high-quality diet, and cognitive activities”.

Researchers analyzed data of nearly 3,000 participants.

It was also found that participants who followed two to three of these behaviors had a 37% lower risk of Alzheimer’s “compared to participants with no or one healthy lifestyle factors”.
